We get Up tp nine Wood pigeon on ou top bird tables regularly, these have been coming for about three years. Down at the bottom of the garden we get many sparrows, always glad to help them out. sometimes we get a robin and we had a pair of Great Tit's nesting last year ,it was a treat to see the young fly off.
